Explore Bytes, binary and twos complement number systems in a fun and informative way.
ByteSplorer written to assist students to understand binary numbers and interpreting the value stored in a byte.
The binary value is set on a series on bits, as it is changed the value is shown as an Unsigned decimal number, a signed decimal number and a hexadecimal number.
The keypad allows a small set of operations to be performed on the byte.
The instructions are: shift all bits left, shift all bits right, invert, add 1 to the value.
The invert and +1 keys enable experimenting with twos complement arithmetic to find the negative of an 8 bit signed number.
